The opening segments of the movie are simply odd, distracting and unconvincing. It's the movie's final act that is sick.

Unfortunately, plot is a totally unconvincing jumble and Ryan O'Neal as a sports reporter hooked on the gambling game is wooden and unsympathetic.

Fights its own message of gambling as an addiction.

You could live a long time and never see anything as awful as Fever Pitch.

It waffles constantly, and we never know if the creators are for or against gambling.

Brooks films the action in sharply defined images with spare and aggressive angles, conjuring the inner howls of conflicting desires tearing Steve and the sordidly glossy milieu apart during even the simplest of events.
